Take the Bus

Traveling on the highways is becoming more economical

Fed up with air travel? Consider the bus. Intercity buses are not only a lot cheaper than airplanes, they're "greener," too, and they pick up and drop off in the center of town. Many offer free Wi-Fi and power outlets.

Bolt Bus, a Greyhound-owned line, goes nonstop from New York to Boston for $15 — cheaper if you score a super-bargain fare. Greyhound (which has 3,800 U.S. destinations) makes five stops on that route and costs $37, less with advance reservations.

Travel from Detroit to Chicago on a MegaBus double-decker for $15. For more bargains, check out other off-brand lines that ply the roads between many cities.
